Lee Salvador pays tribute to his brother, sound artist Lirio Salvador who's still in the hospital recovering from injuries after being hit-and-run in front of Espasyo Siningdikato, a creative space he established with fellow artists in DasmariƱas, Cavite. Lirio Salvador is best known for his assemblage art of musical instruments known as Sandata (Weapon). He's an influential figure in the experimental Philippine music scene and has played solo or with his band Elemento. 

After his accident, Lirio lapsed into a coma for weeks and underwent a brain surgery. He is slowly but steadily recovering. Friends and family have been watching over the progress of Lirio's condition and have organized several fundraisers to help with his hospital bills. "Sandata Ako Ni  Lirio" (I Am Lirio's Weapon) was coined not only as a catchphrase but as a pledge and declaration among his friends, family and other concerned individuals to become Lirio's human instument and support through his recovery.

Become Lirio's Sandata. Visit the Facebook community Help Lirio Salvador for updates on Lirio's condition and for ways to help him.

Tie One

 Jonathan See Lim AKA Tie One (1979–1998), was a graffiti artist based in the San Francisco Bay Area. He was well known in the graffiti community for his aggressive style of graffiti art and the large amount of work he produced. Lim was born in the Philippines to ethnic-Chinese parents. During his early childhood, his family moved to California. -pilipinas-streetplan Saint Patrick’s Day has always been difficult to celebrate because on this day eleven years ago, our friend and soldier Tie, Jonathan See Lim, was murdered in the Tenderloin of San Francisco on Turk and Taylor. A man named William Porter shot him in the back of his head while Tie was begining to climb a rooftop to pain. Of cource the SF police covered it up as a robbery and our 18 year old little buddies death went unvindicated. He was a major influence to us all and his memory will live on in our hearts. - saberone
